Just finished Prador Moon and though it is shorter than the other novels, it is very good. Non stop action here with memorable new characters Prador, human, golem and AI. We also get to see Occam's Razor and Cpt. Tomalan taking on Prador dreadnoughts that easily have overwhelmed Polity's first line of defence.
I think this one shows Mr. Asher at top form and I await now eagerly Polity Agent.
Very highly recommended.
